What do you think? awful or nice. The denim ones are all sold out and with a hefty pricetag they have now introduced linen cotton ones in a kind of beige colour. I am in two minds. I love the top half of them but think the bottom half make the model look like an overgrown toddler. What do you think of them? Or maybe you have a pair and think they look nice on real women? I think the models make the clothes look weird and really puts me off buying anything from them [ if i could afford it] as they are way overpriced imo. Comments please ?????!!!!

I dont get why people dont like them. I think they look great when they are the right fit and they are worn well. I wore them when I was young and I wore leggings but there is no way I would wear them the same way with the same things. That is why! I mean its perfectly clear to me that fashion comes round again and again. It always tweaked in a different way. I wear leggings but I wear them under dresses and tunics not the way they were worn in the 80's!smile smile

Is it 1992? grin

I didn't know Toast sold kids clothes wink

I like them too! Toast ones hideously overpriced though shock

I don't like them because they are so unflattering. They make your bum look huge and cover up any waist you may have. They never seem to fit properly. Also they are a complete pain in the arse when you need to go to the loo. I cannot imagine a single reason why I would wear them!

I don't like hem because they are impractical, ugly and unflattering.

I used to rock dungarees when I was about 17 or so, loose fit wrecked denim ones with a tight vest underneath grin and a headscarf a la Rosie the Riveter.

What do you all think of this gem from Toast? I think they've outdone themselves.

And I usually quite like Toast.

Akward Those dungarees are great if you are Andy Pandy.
Even the model looks ridiculous.

And slightly traumatised...

Used to wear denim dungarees (when I was young and lissom and hot) Actually, yes that would have been 1992.

Those toast ones are AWFUL, they look like cheap supermarket baby clothes freakily scaled up. I sort of get the ones on the blog channelling the Barbara off the good life vibe. But even so, probably only for the young, slim and pretty.

I'm wearing my ASOS ones today, I love em!

AmberNectarine Fri 14-Mar-14 19:27:20

Don't think I look TOO bad, do I?

AwkwardSquad Fri 14-Mar-14 19:30:01

I think you look great. The yellow sneakers are perfect. I'm an overall fan (ba-boom tish!).

I've got some skinny black ones from new look, love them.

Amber you look great if you are decorating!

AmberNectarine Fri 14-Mar-14 20:22:46

Lolz at decorating. Toddler wrangling and Tesco so not a massive step up. I wouldn't wear them out on the pull. Though DH might have something to say about that.

I don't know if it is the camera angle but they make your body look very long and your legs quite short.

AmberNectarine Fri 14-Mar-14 21:52:30

Combination of camera angle and my actual body shape, alas.

frankietwospots Fri 14-Mar-14 22:03:32

Love 'em Amber!

Pixiepie Fri 14-Mar-14 23:22:16

You look great in them!

If your aim is Play School presenter meets Bananarama, then go ahead...

You look great, Amber!

Saw someone wearing a skinny black pair yesterday: am tempted.

Pixiepie Sat 15-Mar-14 11:43:02

That stripe jumpsuit from toast is seriously awful!!!!! Now i do think they are hideous hideous hideous!!!! One for the sales. I mean who will wear them?

I thought the dungarees from toast might look ok on a real person with some shape!!! Not the beige ones but the denim ones. I dont like the models in the toast website. They look awful with anything on them from their website. Is it just me?

Floisme Sat 15-Mar-14 15:16:31

I have fond memories of my dungarees. I don't think I'll be bothering this time round but I'd be quite pleased (although surprised) to see them back. Yes, they are hideously unflattering but that's kind of the point!
